Imagine - relaxing on a large, private wrap-around deck, enjoying the sounds of the birds, the squirrels chattering as they run along the fence, and the gentle breeze through the trees. You look over the railing and see three deer slowing meandering across the private lawn. The deer stop, look up at you for a moment, and then casually walk off past the fence. The magic of the moment is real.
